    Are USTA tournaments drying up for good or is this just temporary?

    USTA needs to change with massive overhaul!!! Get rid of self rating as it’s **** and sandbaggers are taking advantage of this and it’s needs to end!!! Also need to set limit of rosters as well. It’s plain stupid to have 16-20 players on mixed doubles/men’s/women summer leagues!!! Should be set...

    Getting better

    Hi all-just wanted to know. If you want to get better and win matches on consistent basis you have to make this a full time 2nd job don’t you along with nutrition water and lots of sleep.

    Preparing for League Matches

    Seeing this I agree that foam rolling/stretches before/after are a must!!! Also eating clean healthy is a must. Seriously tennis has to be a 2nd job if you want to be successful. You absolutely have to put time off the court/ball machine/hitting serves. All of which I just mentioned have failed...

    your biggest lead blown or meltdown

    Meltdowns are part of my tennis as I’m too hot headed which I admit. After yesterday it’s time to seriously re think about playing. I’ve been told you need to be fit to play and not play to get fit. Those that said this are right!!! Not worth playing if I can’t get fit. Especially after winning...

    Did yesterday losing 06/06 shouldn’t have been playing as I knew this was going to happen. It’s part of USTA to stack lineups in order to win in going to sections as our team match was for sections birth. With losing in this manner it time to either work hard/make this a second job or just quit...

If I can’t get into the shape I need to as well not playing to my expectations then yes it’s time to get out/Flex leagues suck ass!!! With working full time/trying to fit matches in. Usta needs to have...

    USTA Flex League

    Flex leagues are a major pain!!! Singles I’ll do as you only need the other guy to agree on day/time-one doubles forget it!!! Much rather have set day/time instead of flex as you need all 4 to agree. And yes if you lose first couple of matches why bother playing?

    Line-Ups Are Written In Blood

    Being a captain is hard work and thankless job. Understanding about other things going on-totally get that. With mixed doubles you don’t need to 18-20 players when you only have 3 matches/summer league is different but still difficult with vacations. Best way is to get players who want to...

    I like the game when I win-not losing with all the money I’ve spent & invested with getting lessons from tennis pros. I should be better then this but I’m not :( this has to change!!! It doesn’t help that I’m jealous and envious of people I’ve played on weekly group. They’ve moved up to 3.5 and...

    Quitting in match

    It’s a realistic thought. Need to take this sport seriously-start using ball machine for backhand/working on serve every day-same with eating healthy/drinking tons of water/getting lean/ripped/hard. If I have to quit going out with friends to do this I will!! if not then yes it is time to quit.

    Annoying chit-chat during changeovers...

    I despise playing against friends in competitive matches-just hate it!! It’s burned me many times with chit chat during changeovers. It’s gamesmanship which I won’t take part in anymore. When you play competitive matches be it usta or singles ladder league there are no friends with this.

    Annoying chit-chat during changeovers...

    Can’t be friendly and competitive!!’ Go to opposite court. That’s what I do. Friends are draining. I’ve decided to focus on winning instead, I don’t care if I’m a pharaoh. If it’s about winning my matches then it’s worth it

    Players that improve as adults

    You’ve got to put the time in off court. Be ball machine/serves/having tennis pro/. It’s expensive that’s for sure. Fitness/nutrition/hydration/staying fit/getting plenty of sleep is a must if you want to play at competitive level. I don’t buy into this rec tennis bs. That’s angers me...
